Donate a Piano to a Senior Center:

Senior facilities are often in need of a good piano or electric keyboard. Even if they have one, it may not be in adequate repair or mobile to accommodate everyone. Consider donating your loved ones piano to a favorite retirement center, nursing home or senior day care site. This is excellent therapy for them to play or listen to others play. It is also a great resource for the facility for open houses, themed events or for music vendors who come to entertain residents.

Troy is always expanding his repertoire. He enjoys learning
new songs. Troy has developed a personal library of over
